Details how to sync and group a Multi Camera shoot in AVID Media Composer for Assistant Editors on Reality TV programs. Covers AVID MultiGroup, Groups, Custom Views, Patching Tracks, Auto Sequence, and Syncing up video clips.

If you need footage to group clips in avid with:
1) Set an analog clock to 12:00 and video tape it using any camera (even a cell). Shoot a minute or two.
2) Reset the Clock and move the camera, shoot again.
3) Repeat for as many angles as you want.
Now you have footage for an AVID multigroup that seems like it was shot simultaneously for editing AVID multicam.

Additionally, you can search out applications that allow you to alter the timecode of a clip. Then alter the TC of the above clips for a greater challenge.

Don't ask me what apps change TC, a good AE knows how to find this stuff.

Congratulations, you've now learned grouping in AVID Media Composer.
